Isn’t democracy awesome?
The democrats and republicans are the new british crown.
It won’t matter who the Republicans nominate. Obama will not be on the Democrat Party ballot. You heard it here first.
Bullsh*t. If they were they wouldn't being doing their best to make that a self-fulfilling prophecy.
They'd best abondon their scorched earth policy here, more & more are recognizing what they're up to.
Would that be the same advisor who said earlier this week that Romney has no intention of repealing 0bamacare?
I think we should. They have suffered long enough.
The whole article is worth reading
Just as some of Ron Paul’s worst enemies are the people who call talk shows claiming to support him, some of Mitt’s worst enemies are those speaking on his behalf who claim to be “advisors”.
We’re screwed. After Obama beats Mittens into a bloody pulp at the polls on November 6, there will be tons of articles on the “conservative” media outlets explaining why its all the fault of those redneck ultra conseratives who are too stubborn and hate-filled to reach across the aisle and surrender our credit cards to the Democrats.
I love this quote from the article:
Fellow columnist Jonah Goldberg spotted the irony: Six months ago it was absurd to call Newt an outsider. But now that the insiders have thrown him out, he is one.
The message is clear: Washington Republicans really hate Newt. And the conservative response? Is there some way we could vote for him twice?
If I ever have a chance to stick it to Tom Delay I’ll do it with a smile.
What an A-hole.
On to practical matters.
At the RNC there will be 2,286 voting delegates. To win, a candidate needs 1,144 (50% + 1 of total).
The majority of those delegates, 60% or more, will be “serious conservatives”, and while they are supposed to vote for a particular candidate in the 1st ballot, if no candidate wins outright, they are “free agents”, and can vote for whoever they choose.
Importantly, after the 1st ballot, *anyone* can be placed into nomination for the 2nd and later ballots.
This is the time in which almost certainly, whoever is nominated will be more conservative than any of the current candidates.
So it is vital to start creating a list of potential dark horse nominees.
Sarah Palin will be high on the list, however, even she might have enough opposition to not get a clear win. But she can be the “kingmaker” for a conservative candidate, and her endorsement will be decisive.
Now that does not mean that we should not fervently debate issues; just tone down the personal attacks on one another. If enough Conservatives really concentrate on the issues, not the personalities, many who see this will be surprised how the candidates begin to move to the Right--subtly, at first, later more dramatically. We saw this in the 1930s, when many formerly Conservative Democrats moved left, under pressure from the FDR Administration. We saw it again in the 1980s, with the Reagan tide, when American politics moved Right.
Getting those who hate American values out of the White House, has to be the greatest priority.
